We ended up taking everything on the walls back further than we had originally anticipated (as in, we took down the lath because it was really loose and lumpy bumpy - not ideal for hanging drywall). We also chose to remove the lath from the ceiling (for the same reason as the wall lath, and to get better access to the ceiling light and future fan wiring). We're going to have one heck of a bonfire come spring!
Here's where we're at:
- demo done
- new joists put in
- sub floor down
- toilet installed (shimmed up to account for tiling later on)
- new hot water tank installed
We have a lot of things left to do, as you can clearly see. We're planning on topping up the blown-in cellulose insulation in the exterior walls (all that fuzzy, dusty stuff on the barn board walls is cellulose).On top of the barn board, we're going to attach foam board insulation, just as some version of a vapour barrier and for a little bit of an extra insulating factor (I think it's only like R 2.5 or something). We have to frame out where our tub and laundry closet is going, we have to put in plumbing for the tub, laundry, and sink, add electrical for the tub (it's a whirlpool!!!), laundry, fan, lights, and outlets. We have to drywall, tile, put in new baseboards (the originals were both hacked to crap and rotten), and put in new windows. I have to strip the original door, and all of the casings from the windows and door that were salvageable (some wasn't). Yeah, we're not anywhere close to finished!

The ceiling is not slanted, I just take terrible pictures.
I may or may not have already been laying in this. P.S. That brass piece is the shower trim valve, not a tub spout!
What do you think so far? Can you start to picture it? It's all I can think about and I cannot wait until we're at the painting and decorating stage!
